Hospice’s physical support makes it easier to keep pain levels under control and reduce discomfort and secondary symptoms often associated with life limiting illnesses. The intent is not to provide a cure for the disease, rather to improve quality of life so you maintain a higher degree of independence longer. Pediatric patients may benefit from pain management in conjunction with curative treatments.

You are never obligated to remain with hospice if you choose not to for any reason. While our approach is not curative, the option to stop services and resume treatment options remains available to you. Pediatric hospice patients may also pursue curative treatments in conjunction with hospice care as outlined in the Affordable Care Act.
Yes, your hospice care team will work with you to help you maintain your highest level of independence for as long as possible. While we will remain available to provide support and supervision as necessary, our team will listen to your cues and provide you with guidelines and modifications to keep personal care tasks safe and comfortable. As your needs change, your care plan will adapt to meet them.
Pain and symptom relief is provided by using the latest technology and medical advances. Medications are sometimes used to offer relief from pain, but they are closely monitored by your personal physician and our medical director. We also use massage, cool cloths, warm baths and physical and occupational therapy techniques to help keep you comfortable.
